20 Reasons to Love Our Husbands

February 14, 2012

Let’s face it, marriage is hard.  No matter how much puppy love, desire, romance, and affection you had for each other in the beginning of your relationship, the reality of living with each other kicks in.  You figure out how to tolerate each other at your worst moments and still appreciate each other at your best.  And that’s for those lucky of us who have found the right person.

Since it’s Valentine’s Day, what better time to take note of the reasons why our husbands are more than just roommates who help us raise our kids.  Sure he may fall short in the fashion advice category, making you wish your college roommate was still around, but could she ever do all of the things that he can?

Twenty Reasons to Love Our Husbands

  1. He can tolerate my morning breath.
  2. I want my sons to grow up to be just like him.
  3. After a week of hard-core PMS, he still comes home every night.
  4. He likes my cooking.
  5. He’s happy to eat leftovers.
  6. I can count on him to always be in the mood when I am.
  7. He wraps a sleepy arm around me when I wake from a nightmare.
  8. He knows the right answer to, “Does this make me look fat?”

  10. He’ll say, “You did poopy on the potty?!!  Great job!!” on the phone even if he’s surrounded by coworkers.

    Love it Stace. Great work and the perfect day to do this list! 🙂
    I love that my hubby is genuinely happy to both verbalize and physically show our girls love.
    I love that he actually talks to them and spends genuine quality time with them doing cool dad stuff.
    I love that he honestly does not complain or care when the house is a mess or the kitchen is dirty because he knows I work hard and tells me so.
    I love that I know I can count on him for the big stuff.
